Starting on January 13th over 4,600 players in Elite: Dangerous are embarking on the most ambitious and far-reaching journey the game’s world has ever seen. Over the course of eight months players from around the world and across all three platforms (PC, PS4, and Xbox One) will leave the Pallaeni system to venture 200,000 light years to the very edge of the game’s galaxy. And if you have the means you can do it all in VR on PC.
Of all the games that I can play with a VR headset on, Elite: Dangerous is very near the top of the list of titles I desperately wish I had more time for. I love getting immersed into games and really feeling like I exist inside the experience and Elite: Dangerous does an incredible job of that.
Elite: Dangerous is about as hardcore of a spaceflight simulator as you can find on the market right now. It’s got full, immersive VR headset support and if you pair that with a HOTAS and some voice control mod you could start living your starship commander fantasy in no time.
With a slew of updates and expansions over the years, intricate game systems to simulate all aspects of space flight, and even a robust surface-level gameplay system there’s basically infinite content in this game. That’s what happens when you simulate 400 billion star systems.
